I just saw this and thought it was a good idea.

Post ONE quote every round.

Use whatever you feel defines you/the world. (since it's what you feel, it's unlimited choices of quotes)

Make sure to give credit to the author. Yes, you may use unknown or anonymous.

Have fun!:)

Con

"The barbarities of war are seldom committed by abnormal men. The tragedy of war is that these horrors are committed by normal men in abnormal situations, situations in which the ebb and flow of everyday life have departed and have been replaced by a constant round of fear, and anger, blood, and death."

Major Thomas in "Breaker Morant"

"One must wait until the evening to see how splendid the day has been." -Sophocles

"It is better to be a human being dissatisfied than a pig satisfied; better to be Socrates dissatisfied than a fool satisfied. And if the fool, or the pig, are of a different opinion, it is because they only know their own side of the question." ~ John Stuart Mill
